week 53- Seattle Salmon and the Superweek

So, this last week was absolutely crazy! Red Robin was WAY good last week, and we got all energized and excited for the week to come! Then, we just wiped ourselves out....
Wednesday, we got up at 5 to get to our Mission President interviews. President Riggs asked us to be there by 7:30, and traffic on the 28 is REALLY bad between 6:15 and 8:00, so we left by 6:00 to make sure to beat the traffic... We beat it all right... We got to the Stake Center at 6:20.... Well, it's better than being there at 8:10 because of traffic, right? So, we set up the interview room and I played the piano while Elder P took a nap (there was no conflict there when you're as tired as we were) haha. Then, President met with us for about a half hour to talk about the zone. After that, we had our usual 15 minute interviews. Then, for the rest of the day, other companionships showed up and they went to talk to President Riggs and while one companion was in with him, the other met with us! It was awesome meeting with each member of the zone, getting to know them better (some I hadn't even met in person thanks to how big the zone is) and asking them what we could do to become better zone leaders. It was way fun!
Thursday, we had Mission Leadership Council, which is basically the Jedi Council of the mission haha. That's what Elder P says at least. Some AMAZING new things are coming that we're teaching to the zone tomorrow at Zone Training. I can't say more than that right now, but we were in the mission home basement from 8:30am to 3:30pm... LOTS of stuff was discussed.
Friday, our entire zone had an incredible opportunity! Elder Ritchie, who with his wife are over the YSA in our mission, gives and incredible lecture series called "launching leaders" and President Riggs has arranged for all of his missionaries to receive the lectures! We had our first one Friday morning!
In between all of that, we SOMEHOW managed to find time to keep our area moving. We have a fantastic ward with a hard-working ward mission and the work is really moving! We're excited to see it continue. We're teaching more people who are progressing than at ANY previous time in my mission, and after Zone Training tomorrow, it's going to get even better! I can't wait to tell you all about it next week!
Until then!
